Observing that many faculty within the Theater Department at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa lacked a strong understanding of the assessment process, I developed a plan intending to “advertise” elements of assessment, making visible what is currently in place and seeking to spotlight several of these assessment components. However, because I was representing theatre, it seemed appropriate to use performance techniques to accomplish this. Using Augusto Boal’s suggestion of “Invisible Theatre” I have subtly tried to spark a conversation about assessment with a group that is not always eager to “color in the lines.” Invisible Theatre is a play that is played in a public space without informing anyone that it is a piece of theatre. In this poster, I showcase many of the scripts used in this “visible/invisible” project and display the department’s new SLO layout, curriculum map and assessment rubric. by Mark Branner
